Distributed Interaction Design (D.X.D.) is a design method that puts the end-user in the driver seat of designing future technologies. This methodologies is builds on Wobbrock et al.’s end-user elicitation method for gesture interactions, and extends that methodology to go beyond the lab to reach end-users on a global scale to design and evaluate interactive systems.
Establish a list of functions available in your system.
Use the Crowdsensus tool to analyze the elicitation study results by utilizing online crowds and machine learning algorithms.

If some of your user-driven interactions are not easily identifiable by users, repeat steps 2 – 4.
Build your system with interactions designed and tested by end-users.
